Adding Slideshows and Slideshow Settings
Slideshows can be added to the top of most pages with your Flotheme. Creating a Slideshow and adding it to your page is simple.
The following article covers creating and adding slideshows to pages, slideshow settings, and the 3 slideshow types available with Vivi.
The following video gives a quick overview of adding a slideshow and slideshow settings in your Vivi theme.
Creating Slideshow and adding it to a Page
1. Add New Slideshow – To create a slideshow you have to go to the ‘Slideshow’ menu and click ‘Add New’.
2. Add Content – Add the slideshow title and then proceed to add the slides:
As you can see in the image above, you can create slides by adding images, these can be images from your media library, or you can upload images here as required, for full screen slideshows we recommend images of 1920x1200px and the images should be optimized for web. You can see more details on the recommended image sizes here.
In the next section you can see some advanced single image settings.
Advanced Single Image Options
After the images are added to the slideshow when you hover over the images you’ll notice 2 images that will allow you to delete or edit the slide you are interested in. And also you can drag and drop the available images to sort them.
When the ‘Edit’ icon is clicked, a modal box will open up and will allow to edit the options available for the current slide. For this theme the available options can be viewed in the image below:
You can edit the settings for all the slides as you are interested in, then close the modal box and publish/update the Slideshow post and all the images and options will be published.
To Add Video, you can insert a Vimeo or YouTube link in the Video URL box, this will add a play button over the slideshow and allow full screen slideshows (if using a full screen option). You can also enable Autoplay if required.
Global Slideshow Settings
Besides the settings for each Slideshow, there are global settings that will affect all the Slideshows, they can be accessed in Flothemes – Content Settings – Slideshow:
